Hosted by

Members of Congress from both parties were knocked out of office this year by various scandals.  Earlier this year, Democratic Congressman William Jefferson became famous when the FBI found $90,000 in marked bills stored in his Washington freezer. Although fellow Democrats are keeping their distance, in a run-off this weekend, he easily won a ninth term from New Orleans voters.
